https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2019/10/trump _drives_press_to_make_a_fool_of_itself_over_a__dog .html

Most people quit responding to trolls.

( I'm often guilty of mocking them, myself, I never claimed maturity. ; ) )

The dog memes are great! Can't wait to see the next provocation.

The cheating Congresscritter would have had me defending her private life, if there wasn't an employee exploitation angle.

And it's almost a pity that her fellow Congressmen's sex crimes and use of taxpayer money as hush money, no doubt accompanied by threats if the victims speak up, resulted in the Republicans actually passing a vote to forbid screwing their employees to try and limit the sexual assault and harassment and blackmail. In Congress. By Congressmen. Using our money to pay off the victims of their Very Personal Crimes.

And because in the Real World it's not that unusual for people to fall for each other, despite a job relationship that is too often exploited by morally weak or evil men. Sometimes, maybe rarely, it's not just about power and unrequited lust.

And there, again, Congresswoman whatshername falls short of getting my support. If she'd stuck with her loves, then I'd admire her willingness to put love over career. But she's "moved on" to another illegal, exploitive relationship with an employee. And is/has dumped the previous one.

The timing on this also hints that the outing/leaking of her sexual relations is linked to the "estrangement" & divorce. I can't discount that the exploited employee urged the husband to abandon a rumoured ( by her ) abusive relationship, or just wanted him for herself, or her for herself, or...

I've known a few, very few, successful, long term, triads. Where 3 people love each other. It's not an easy thing to create and maintain. Most folk who try, fail. ( in my limited experience ) I find keeping a loving relationship with one other hard enough.

So, I sympathize with the ( currently 4 known ) people in this train wreck of a relationship. I wish them all healing and forgiveness, and remorse and reform. It looks like the Congresswoman is the Bad Guy in this, and I'm biased against politicians in general, so it's too easy for me to think so. But I don't know all the details, nor really want to.

All I'm certain of, is that like her Brother Congresscritters, she has been another bad example that ruins relationships that aren't exploitation of others, by forcing rules to be written about obvious messed up power dynamics of love, lust, & power.

Also, whoever coined the term "throuple" deserves a special punishment. Perhaps being forced to read bad slash fanfic of their most beloved characters. For a decade.

Last I looked, they fired a producer for leaking that, who denies it was him & may sue for damages.

It's full Inquisition mode at the Disney Propaganda Network as they seek the heretic! Gather the faggots for the bonfire at the stake!

Long live Big Brother!

If you consider Google management's cooperation with the Red Chinese government, it's political censorship, Social Credit system totalitarianism, blatant spying on Americans by browser, phone, Assitant, & GPS tracking... It's no wonder they dropped their old motto, "Don't be Evil".

We live in a cyberpunk dystopian world ruled by mega-corporations who consider themselves above & beyond any individual government.

We lack the flying cars. They are working on them! But that won't happen until you automate them, since people can't drive in 2 dimensions, and with 3 there'd be Buicks falling out of the sky while morons text & selfie their demise.

The cyberpunk filthy belly of society, though, is showing up in the land of Silicon valley, where living in cars and under overpasses matches the sci-fi and game dystopian future pretty accurately.

One of the problems of being a sci-fi fan, besides social rejection and extended virginity, is the bizarre feeling you get when people are upset & excited about the News, but when you calmly mention that this was "predicted" years ago, and what follows is X, the mundanes think you are crazy. Over and over again.

So far, the Schiff Circus "testimony" can be used to convict Joe Biden & Barack Obama for corruption.

Just a reminder, Obama and Soros are now business partners. Thus actions by the Ambassador to protect Soros from Ukrainian prosecution is conflict of interest.

I look forward to hearing more Obama criminal evidence this week.

Radio pundit today subbing on another's show predicted that Trump would indeed be impeached by the House. Quid or no Quid, evidence, testimony, or actual crimes makes no difference to the vote that the D Leadership has apparently committed itself to. ( and maybe not 100% on a Party Line vote ) Then very highly probably they will fail to convict in the Senate. If it comes to trial.

I'm cynical enough to agree, today.

They were talking on Fox Business News a couple of days ago how nothing from the impeachment hearing persecution seems to be having any affect on the markets. NONE. The consensus was that the news of Trump being impeached is baked in right now. Basically, to the folks that stand to make millions, over the slightest bits of news, simply think any facts that come from the hearings don't make a bit of difference to the outcome. At least Schiff is being transparent in one way.

https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2019/11/w hy_are_journalists_so_humorless.html

One of the problems with totalitarian leaning leftists is a lack of humor. I mean besides the theft, death camps, and religious zealotry.

The Babylon Bee is a Christian parody site, and spends nearly as much space picking on evangelical and establishment Christianity as it does in political humor.

I might not get all the jokes about heavy metal drummers in Church bands like someone who attends a hip modern church, so that humor is obviously aimed at fellow faithful. And they must be laughing, since the site is popular.

That stands in stark contrast to the monotone mean spirited humor I see in Mainline Media. But that could be my perspective.

The Bee has an article on Trump setting the hounds on the press. They aren't laughing. They are triggered that Trump threatened them with a frightening evil military attack dog. At the same time they accuse his wife & him of shunning the poor puppy, because he didn't pet the evil military attack dog.

Never mind that anyone not a total idiot would know to brief the President not to pet or crowd an animal trained to be useful to a K9 crew. It's not a comfort animal trained to be petted by kids in a hospital. ( a friend has one such dog ) It's trained to be wary of strangers, to prevent being hurt or used as a bomb delivery vehicle. And you are hauling it out in front of a crowd of hostile, loud, strangers. So it's stressed already. ( and a dog can smell angry or scared people, which perfectly describes the White House press corpse. ( Obama joke ))

A couple of years ago we had work training on the subject of "grooming". It's really disturbing stuff. The idea of the training was that if you know how it works, you may recognize it when you see it, so it can be reported. Unfortunately, this sort of training is also pretty much a "how to" manual for those that would do this. It also sets them up with more information on how to not get caught. It really had me wondering if the training we got was a net positive, or negative. The people involved in this stuff really deserve some of the worst suffering that can be provided.

Remember which Party supports slavery. That hasn't changed since before the Civil War. In fact, it you see the brilliant play, 1776, you can see the same folk supported slavery for over 245 years. They just weren't a Party in name then.

Jew hate cover up. By the same paper that covered up genocide of Ukrainians. And Jews, in the Soviet Union. Pretty sure there's editorials praising the half of "The Crew" who share the British Labour Party view on people of that oppressed minority. ( But that's speculation on my part, I don't read the New Pravda Times, anymore, usually )

As to the Saudi military murder suicide at Pensacola, the most powerful tool of an editor is to choose what not to report.
